Report in The Age on 2011-10-09 said that the Department of Sustainability and Environment rejected the presumptuous request by the landowner that built a private swimming pool on Mt Eliza coastal Crown land, anomalously zoned FZ, to buy that land. Victoria's Coastal Management Act 1995 sets a measly penalty for such an illegal construction of 40 penalty units, which is only $6,066.80 for 2015-16.
